@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 April 2020 - 11:07 AM)

I could never master oral bullshittery. But in my day I was quite adept with the written word.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (01 April 2020 - 11:32 PM)

You have mastered the art of Bulljive. You must use this power only for good, or entertainment.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

Who, I might add, has never been photographed together with Byteman. Just sayin'.

@  Sabrblade : (30 March 2020 - 10:27 PM)

Bruce Wayne's cyberpunk cousin?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 09:27 PM)

Laser Wayne

@  Sabrblade : (30 March 2020 - 09:08 PM)

Luther Unum

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 07:09 PM)

Or Lee Derwon.

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:51 PM)

Not to be confused with Leader I

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Oh yeah, that was Fort Max. My bad.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (28 March 2020 - 09:12 PM)

@  LBD "Nyt... : (28 March 2020 - 09:11 PM)

Christmas Maximus?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 March 2020 - 01:13 PM)

At least the ozone layer is healing. unless this is a 0.0000000001% thing it's sounds like good news.

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 March 2020 - 09:27 AM)

(But only pretty sure, not 100% sure.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 March 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Pretty sure y'all were thinking of Fortress Maximus yesterday.

@  Bass X0 : (28 March 2020 - 12:38 AM)

Dare! Dare to believe you can survive 2020!

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 March 2020 - 08:18 PM)

Baja Blast is back at retail!

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 03:47 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

@  OverDrive73 : (26 March 2020 - 10:56 PM)

If anyone is bored, or interested... I just added the last chapter to my fanfic comic in Allspark Pictures

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:54 PM)

And no.. We could always get Titan Class Superion.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:53 PM)

We need Titan Class Transformers Armada Metroplex.

@  Telly : (26 March 2020 - 08:39 PM)

ill be surprised if scorpy isnt the last titan

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:57 PM)

Too bad a new character titan class figure is pretty much an impossibility.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:56 PM)

I want a titan class, really good looking bucket wheel excavator. Like Cybertron Metroplex was supposed to be but didn't quite pull off.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 March 2020 - 03:32 PM)

I just taped up a shower curtain and took my first shower in three weeks. It was heavenly.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (26 March 2020 - 11:48 AM)

I would buy that...

While there is nothing new on the horizon in terms of production material, I've gone a bit extreme these past few days with adding information.  Added sections detailing TF scene/dialogue cuts and TFTM storyboard cuts that I've posted here and on other forums.  Currently working on Visionaries dialogue cuts, should have the series done in the next couple of days.  Also added production order lists for shows that lasted long enough to go to weekday afternoons and thus production order doesn't line up with broadcast order. 

 

As part of what forays I can make into Sunbow's 1990's output, I've Included a list for Conan The Adventurer.  Where Jean Chalopin dubiously claims to have written 52 half-hours of TV in six months, I've trawled the copyright office records for the writers who have the *cough cough* "Adapted By" credit.

Put up something I probably should have added early on:  a guide to programming, organised by TV season, covering from the beginning of Marvel Productions in 1981 to the shutting down of Sunbow in 2004:

https://sunbowmarvel...-tv-season.html

 

Kinda sad to read the decline of the respective companies in two separate decades.  Beast Wars basically was the beginning of the end for Sunbow in the nineties.  As they didn't get any more Hasbro properties after that, and no comic or movie adaptations were coming their way either.

The first of a series of articles I'm doing on the writing and production process, using what I've brought together.  First up, the three-step process of scripting, using the only available example of both an outline and script for the same episode: Cobra Stops The World

An offer I got over the weekend to have my own set of TFTM storyboard scans for the archive means I can now hive off all the movie material into it's own section: https://sunbowmarvel...mers-movie.html

Third article is up.  Something a bit more of a feast for the eyes as it looks at storyboards, slugging and the exposure sheets.  With storyboard samples taken from TF, D&D, DoE, Jem and Amazing Friends

Fourth article ready and probably the last one for the time being.  Looking at the dialogue recording sessions, the drawing up of dialogue scripts and the change that was made to the production schedule halfway through TF.  Also, links to the existing deleted audio and photos showing a major change made to Five Faces Of Darkness: https://sunbowmarvel...-recording.html

Another unproduced project come to light.  An ebay script store is selling pretty much everything from Misty Taggart's career and I'm waiting for her two Jem scripts to pop up.  While I'm waiting, it turns out that she had the gig of developing and pitching a combined Hulk/She-Hulk series.  Maybe a last ditch effort to retool the existing series for renewal?

Many thanks for bringing this to attention. There are a few interesting items on the excerpts shown, such as Marvel considering the original 1982 Hulk series something of an underperformer since the Hulk wasn't more like the live-action version. It's a little strange to then read that, while making the Hulk less verbose, She-Hulk was proposed as an additional regular.

When I first got to the note that made it explicit that Jen Walters and Bruce Banner weren't cousins, I knew what this was in aid of, and the suggested plots confirm her being added as another love interest. In similar fashion to "Spidey Goes Hollywood" and the subsequent 1982 Hulk series, "Enter: She-Hulk" would also appear to be subject to retconning.

I would imagine any references to Jen and Bruce being cousins would have simply been edited out of the proposed re-edits of the previous season.

Again, Marvel re-editing episodes was not unprecedented, with later NBC airings of the first season of Amazing Friends having Stan Lee narration added to them, on at least one occasion with an edit to a character's dialogue.

Obviously the proposed retooling wasn't enough, as no new Hulk episodes were produced for the 1983 season, despite Amazing Friends continuing to be broadcast with pre-existing Hulk episodes in a block.

The general sense of desperation here does lend some credence to something else that was said to be happening in the same timeframe.  In his interview for the Dungeons & Dragons DVD, Mark Evanier talks about how Marvel were calling him up and basically begging him to write the development bible and the pilot.  He was told that if they couldn't sell D&D to a network, Marvel Productions would be shut down.  Even then, he wasn't interested as he was doing a pilot for somebody else.  It was only when one of the top network executives called him and said they would delay the up-fronts (the announcements of the next season's programming) if he could do it, that he finally came onboard.

Hey guys,
 
You’ve shared some really interesting pieces in this forum from Marvel Production Ltd and a handful of other studios.
 
I’m currently working with the person who owns/owned many of the pieces being discussed that slowly trickled into the public over the years, and recently, we’ve been unloading a significant portion as they are now legal to sell.
 
If you want to view more pieces from the collection to use for this thread and other topics, feel free to contact me directly on Instagram via ‘consumercollectibles’ as we have a-lot more to share and discuss. Thanks!
